BC ECHO on Substance Use – Alcohol Use Disorder aims to help primary care providers and their teams build capacity in the treatment and management of high-risk drinking and alcohol use disorder.

This series is part of the larger BC ECHO on Substance Use, a virtual community of practice that aims to help primary care teams build capacity in the treatment and management of substance use disorders. The program also includes a new BC ECHO on Substance Use – Alcohol Use Disorder series that launches in August 2020.
